I haven't seen one of these before. Does anybody know anything about them?

I do not know much about the StarFork, but the Equus site has a scan of the old catalogue for you >>>

What he said +
intro'd in 1991 afaik (need to check this) similar to the RS1 in look and probably function before they moved to the new designed in 1992...


EIDT to add more as I find it as of to search, should say it was their first fork (MTB)

Mentioned here (Marzocchi site

Look at their manuals (none available) but they are 1990 on their site

Haven't played with one, but the XC100 is a pretty simple beast, so this one should be too.

Are you looking to buy this fork or the bike??

Thanks Andrew, but no. It was part of the eBay sale of a 1991 Explosif, and it struck me that it was the earliest Marzocchi I had seen. But I'm no expert, as you know.

I corresponded with the seller because he started his ad with probably the worst photos I had seen. He added much better ones subsequently and eventually realised £265 on the bike. I think he upgraded to the Marzocchi when he first bought the bike all those years ago.

I might have seals and spare parts for it.
Drop me a note, if you are in need.

Regards
